Sweet Kauai Mele, 1889.

HE LEI MOKIHANA.

A luna makou la o Haupu
Ike i ka nani o ka aina
Aina kaulana i ka maikai
Ka waiho kahelahela i ka iu
Ua iu e ka home Hanamaulu
I ke ehu a ke kai a e pa nei
Kau aku ka manao no Kemamo
Kahi wai kaulana a ke kupua
He ui a he ninau keia
Pehea kahi pali o Kipu
Ua nani ia me ka maikai
E ua hoa nei o ke kula loa
Ke uleuleu nei no maua
I ike i ka wai mapunapuna
Moani mai nei hoi ke ala
He ala lipoa no Mopi
Auhea wale oe e ka ohu
A e hoopulu nei i ka nui pua
Pua lei ia pua Mokihana
Wili ia me ke oho o ka palai
Ke huli hoi nei na huapala
I ka malu ohai a o Huleia
Eia makou i ka home olu
I ka poli pumehana la o ka makua
Ua nani na niu la o Pae
I ka holu i ke ahe a ka makani
Haina ke ala la o na pua
Onaona kuu lei pua Mokihana

(Kuokoa, 12/28/1889, p. 1)
